The Raymond, Mackay, from London, arrived in New Plymouth on the 30 August, dates to 3rd May, brought out the Twelfth Report of the New Zealand Company with an Appendix, in all containing about 1300 ocavo pages. Truly a vivid and impressive history of misgovernment and its consequences; proceeded to Wellington same day; crew in a state of mutiny; brought out a Mr Dempster, from Aberdeen, to report upon New Edinburgh; vessel proceeds from Wellington to Auckland; will only be a few days in Wellington

The passenger list is missing and also any information on its arrival in Nelson
